Can you please tell me how much this glove weighs? It seems like the higher quality full leather gloves weigh more than the synthetic. I was looking at the Nokona 10.5â€ youth glove but it weighs about 450g or almost 1 pound and Iâ€™m afraid that my soon to be 7 year old soon will find it too heavy to handle as thatâ€™s almost twice the weight of a Mizuno Prospect that size.
The Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series: 1000JRIW Youth weighs approximately 355 g.
My son is 6 years old and is moving from tee ball (he is a lefty thrower). Which glove size do you think will be best: (9" or 10")?
Generally, we suggest a mitt around 10" for a 6 year old player. This Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JRIW Youth) has a 10" length and would be something for consideration for your player.
My player is 9 years old and normally plays second, but he also plays center. He has a 11.5" and I feel it is too big for his hand. Is a 10" glove good for a 9 year old?
For a 9 year old that is playing a variety of positions (infield and outfield), I would probably recommend going with an 11" mitt over a 10" mitt like this Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JRIW Youth). The 10" mitt would be a little small in my opinion. I might recommend a mitt like the 2017 Rawlings Gamer Youth Pro Taper 11" Baseball Glove (GYPT1-1B).
Shoeless Joe Gloves give a player the quality, feel, and style of the gloves used by professional ball players over the last 100 years. You can choose glove models used in the first half of century in the Golden Age Series, today's models in the Professional Model Series, or youth gloves with the Joe Junior Series. Shoeless Joe gloves are individually hand-cut and sewn from Special Aged Antique Tobacco Leather Hides. Shoeless Joe gloves are then hand-rubbed with old time ingredients to soften the leather before they go through their breaking in process that leaves the glove with a beaten up and "Game Worn" look and feel, of a broken in glove. Thus each glove is unstructured giving it its own unique features. Players can choose to play with an old time or modern day web without having to change to another model. A great play is lived only once, but your glove, you'll keep it forever. If you end a game with a clean uniform our gloves are not for you. Shoeless Joe: When It Was Just a Game. Free Shipping!
